Pakistan demands UN for strict monitoring of LoC
Pakistan has demanded for the strengthening of the (UN) United Nations Mission which monitors the Line of Control in Kashmir.
According to details, Maleeha Lodhi urged top UN peacekeeping official to take steps to enhance UNMOGIP’s monitoring along the LoC as Indian troops have been repeatedly violating it since August 15.
Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi said that midnight raids by Indian forces have been intensified and an atmosphere of fear and intimidation prevails.
Previously, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) Maleeha Lodhi said that the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has an obligation to resolve the decades-old Kashmir problem by implementing its own resolutions that pledged the right of self-determination to the Kashmiri people.
In an interview with Al-Arabiya television, Maleeha Lodhi said that Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK) had become an armed cage, urging the international community to intervene in the area before it was too late.
Maleeha Lodhi said over 700,000 Indian troops have been deployed and an additional number of troops have also been sent to the valley.
She said that an occupying power is using all instruments of repression, to subdue the people of Jammu and Kashmir and yet we also know from reports that we are receiving, and these are international media outlets receiving these reports, that over 500 protest demonstrations have already been held in the last 3 to 4 weeks, so people are resisting the kind of state terrorism that has been inflicted upon them.
She said Pakistan has raised the grave situation with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and at the Security Council.
